This paper presents the work associated with the development of an innovative crown for posterior teeth. The idea is to produce a transparent cap that is mounted on top of the tooth, in this way facilitating the gluing of the crown and ensuring a good visual compatibility with the existing tooth. For the proposed crown concept, two properties are especially important – surface roughness and transparency. The paper presents the development and evaluation of two process chains based on industrially adaptive production methods. The process chains are compared based on their ability to meet product specifications in terms of roughness, transparency and mechanical properties.
